Soak your Eyeballs in the Work of Souther Salazar

Posted by Angie

Artist :: Souther Salazar << Illustration Friday

souther-salazar03

Souther Salazar’s collages, paintings, drawings and sculptures are playful and vibrant dreamscapes of overlapping narratives— half-remembered, half-imagined places “where stories can develop and take on a life of their own.” Utilizing a wide variety of freely mixed media, found objects and layers of assemblage, his work evokes the wonders and imagination that many of us abandoned in childhood.

Souther began making photocopied cut-and-paste mini-comics and ‘zines as a teenager in California. He now lives in Portland, Oregon and has shown his work in galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Switzerland, Brazil, and other far-flung places. If you’re in the NY area in May, check out his show at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. If you can’t get to NY, there’s always Etsy– Souther has some pretty awesome prints for sale there.

And you can also spend hours soaking your eyeballs in the awesome work on his website and Facebook.

absolutely exquisite handmade birds :: Abigail Brown

Post by Alice Palace

The birds that Abigail makes are an absolute delight…

abigail brown << illustration friday

Abigail spent large amounts of time as a child in the company of her grandma, an incredibly talented, hardworking seamstress, in a house strewn with loose threads and scraps of fabric. There is nothing more natural to her than to work with fabric, using it to give life to the little creatures that form in her mind.

Abigail produces her birds entirely by hand, in her studio in London, England. They are crafted from both new and reused materials. Each piece is utterly unique, no two will ever be the same.  Have a look at her website

Artist :: Rich Gemmell

Rich Gemmell Mountain

Rich Gemmell Coast

Rich Gemmell Whales

Rich Gemmell combines pencil and ink washes with digital elements to create a deep, rich texture for each of his illustrations. Rich keeps sketchbooks during travels through other countries, such as Scotland, France, and the United States, and his illustrations are developed from these entries with tracing paper. After pencil lines are thickened and ink washes are added, Rich scans his work into the computer to add some final touches.

My absolute favorite of his works is Falls, which he designed from one of his sketches observing kayakers descending some falls at the foot of the Ben Nevis mountain in the British Isles. This particular piece (below) is available on The Working Proof, where 15% of the sales from his illustration goes to profit Transportation Alternatives.

Rich Gemmell Falls

Located in Cambridge, UK, Rich has worked as a freelance illustrator for a variety of sources including The Guardian, Future Snowboarders Magazine, and Sunday Times Magazine. View more of his absorbing artwork on his website, richgemmell.net.

Animals with Human Characteristics :: Julia Pott

Post by Alice Palace

Julia is a British animator and illustrator living in Brooklyn, New York – her work tends to explore the motivations behind human relationships, representing characters as mildly ridiculous animals with human characteristics. I totally LOVE them and have two on my walls at home…

Artist :: Tubi Du

Tubi Du Fish

 Tubi Du Sunrise

Tubi Du Nightfall

Tubi Du’s beautiful Paris-inspired themes are stunning. These scenes offer such a quality of perspective that you feel as though you are actually standing in her illustrations as fish swirl above your head or as you admire the Eiffel Tower, and her use of bright colors in her illustrations is captivating.

Tubi Du studied architecture and interior design before moving near Versailles, France, to begin her graphic artist career with her business, Tubidu Graphics. Her appreciation for the architecture in Paris has inspired countless designs and illustrations. “I love various kinds of themes: serious, emotional, surreal and architectural themes all inspire me. I also love to use strong colors because they make me happy and always fill me with energy.

View her portfolio of illustration and design at Tubidu Graphics on Etsy.

Kate Bingaman-Burt’s hilarious illustrations can’t help but put a smile on my face on this dreary Friday morning (is it nice and sunny where you are? Ireland isn’t quite aware that it’s Spring yet). For this particular project Kate posted an open call for mix-tape submissions and drew all of the tapes sent to her by strangers. The resulting images are sweet glimpses of a fleeting period of time when the mix-tape was the height of romantic.

Kate works for lots of brands as a commercial illustrator, as well as teaching, giving talks, designing textiles and drawing everything she buys every day. See more of her work on her website and blog. You might just like to check out her shop too…it’s full of lovely stuff.
